Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir administration has started upgrading the government degree college at Bijbehara with support from the World Bank.

Construction of 12 additional classroom blocks and two common halls at the degree college started off in full swing by R&B Kashmir at a cost of Rs 10.31 crore and the project is being funded under the World Bank project of (Jhelum Tawi Flood Recovery Project), reports ANI.

The construction work on the ground floor of the block has been completed and shuttering for the laying of slab on the first floor is underway. Earlier due to a shortage of classrooms, students were facing issues, but after the compaction of these additional classrooms, many problems will find aid, the Indian news agency reported.

“JTFRP World bank funded this project for the well being of Kashmiri students. Two common halls and 12 classrooms are being constructed. The project began in November 2019 and should be completed within the next 18 months. A lot of time was wasted due to lockdown and pandemic as we did not have any standard operating procedure. But now the work is steadily progressing. Students difficulties will be minimised,” Shahjehan Ahmad Itoo, Assistant Executive Engineer - R&B, told ANI

Students have appreciated the move.
